Warioware: Smooth Moves

Monday, April 23rd, 2007

 

I’ll try to get a bunch of these done today so I can catch up…

 

Premise

You don’t know about Wario Ware? Go to the back of the class. Wario Ware is, in all its forms, a compendium of mini games. Each one lasts seconds rather than minutes and you must not only complete the game to keep going but first you have to try to work out what exactly you have to do to complete the mini game.

 

Controls

Wario Ware needs only a Wii Remote but it does ask you to use it in various fun and unique ways. Each of these ways is called a ‘Form’ and they can vary from putting it on the ground/table top and quickly picking it up to holding it above your head while you nod, duck or crouch.

Trauma Center: Second Opinion

Monday, April 23rd, 2007

 

God I am so behind on these, I have masses of games still to write up about :( Anyway onto Trauma Center.

 

Premise

Like the original DS version you play a rookie surgeon who starts doubting his abilties until he find he is one of the few in the world with a special healing gift.

 

Controls

You use the Wii Remote to manipulate the various surgical implements e.g. scalpel, bandage, x-ray etc. The nunchuk on the other hand is used to select each implement making changing each much quicker and more fluid than the DS. Using the Wii remove as a scalpel etc is really nice and in many ways feels more surgical than the DS version. It’s very satisfying and not fiddley at all,

Ridge Racer 7

Monday, April 23rd, 2007

 

Like Resistance I got this for Christmas and am only now getting round to writing about it…

 

Premise

Erm drive cars round Ridge State fast and win prizes. Best get your drift on ‘cos the corners are tight. Or you could say a re-hash of the PS1, PS2 and 360 Ridge Racers. Same old tracks but with better graphics… Oh and this time you can customise your cars (watch out Need for Speed)!

 

Controls

Steer, accelerate and drift. If you need to brake your playing the wrong driving game. The reason I like RR is its all about the drifting, many games have tried but RR always feels on the money. Gliding round one of its corners at top speed is exhilarating. But it is all feeling a little too familiar!

Resistance: Fall of Man

Monday, April 23rd, 2007

 

Got a this with my PS3 at Christmas. I know its like 5 months later but World of Warcraft and work have been eating up a lot of my time so its been hard to write!

 

Premise

Its the Second World War but in a parallel universe. There are no nazis, instead a mutant/alien plague has escaped Russia and spread across Europe to the UK. You and some American Allies must fight of this scourge and save the world. Nice graphical showcase for the PS3 and an interesting plot line (well instead of the usual WWII fps shlock).

 

Controls

The game is a first person shooter and so uses the usual: left stick for move and strafe and the right for turn and look. Strangely the triggers are not used for weapons by default (although this can be configured). At certain points you have to shake the control to get rid of bad guys who attach themselves to you.
